Watch: Laois hurler loses his stick... but still manages to kick the cheekiest point of the year

Stephen Bergin can take credit for one of the greatest bits of improvisation on a sports field in 2017.

Clough-Ballacolla beat Abbeyleix by 0-18 to 0-10 to book their place in the Laois SHC final yesterday, and Bergin maintained his side's advantage with a pretty outrageous point late on.

Having lost his hurley, it looked like Bergin would have to dish it off to a team-mate - but instead, he soloed past a defender before kicking a point from 25m.

Bergin's bit of skill wouldn't be out of place in Croke Park next Sunday, and is definitely worth a watch.
